14. I've heard something like that before, although not in my own neighborhood

My ancestry on my dad's side of the family is deeply rooted in Tennessee. I have a great, great, great grandmother who lived during the 19th century who was an atheist. At the time that got her branded a witch, and old people from the town she lived in still refer to her as such and won't come within a certain distance of her grave at the local cemetery. It is said that she heckled people who walked past her house on the way to church on Sunday. I bet she was a hoot.

My wife and I got married last year and we took our honeymoon on Tybee Island, Georgia just outside of Savannah. A few days there we went into Savannah and did the touristy type stuff. We went to a famous cemetery there that was supposed to be haunted. It's called Saint Bonaventure and it is a beautiful place as far as cemeteries go. Huge live oaks covered with Spanish moss; headstones, grave sites, and tombs that are beautiful works of art. There are many alleged sightings reported from that cemetery going going back to its inception, and many of the grave sites have their own mythology due to the many numbers of supposed close encounters with the dead.
